We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • BBQ Snob

    So I have been enjoying egg food for a while.  All the local BBQ chains..im sick of.  They don't taste as great as what I can get from the egg.  We have Texas Roadhouse, Piggy's BBQ, Up in Smoke,Sonny's BBQ, Jim and Milts BBQ.  All of them taste so-so..processed actually.  It taste processed.

    So today I thought I would try a BBQ food truck.  I saw the smoke a blazing from Bass pro shop and it smelled so good..so after I bought some stuff from bass pro shop..i went over there.  I placed my order for 1/2 rack rib and 1/4lb pulled pork with mac and cheese, potato salad, and a sweet tea. While they were getting my order ready..i went over to their pit to look at the temperature.  It was blazing away at the high temp of 125 degrees. Ok..so then I realized that there not actually cooking anything..rather using the smoke as a form of advertising. Fair enough.

    Got my food..smelled amazing..and then I bit into the rib. What did I taste? Delicious smoke and Pig meat? Nope. I tasted lighter fluid with a side of dry ribs(probably reheated..cant blame them to much) I ate one..threw the rest out. Now onto the pulled pork. I was a little leary as the pulled pork was a dark brown. It looked like they had smothered it in bbq sauce. Took a bite...and it was smothered in some of the sweetest sauce ive ever tasted..inedible it was so sweet. If I had diabeties I would of given myself a insulin shot right then and there. In fact maybe I still should.

    So I have decided that the egg has made me a BBQ snob and what I used to like..just doesn't work for me anymore.


     

  • Small vs. Mini

    Im not sure what it is about the Mini..but Steak and Chicken seems to have even more moisture then the Large egg. Has anyone else experienced this? There's nothing better then a medium steak that has clear juice oozing out of it. Yum.

  • how many people have you converted into BGE owners?

    I'm a convert... Oddly enough I never cooked anything. I browned meat or cooked chicken In a George Foreman.. My wife is happy because I do 99% of the cooking now. Even if it's not on the Bge.. It gave me the experience to follow recipes and try complex flavors. So I'm a convert to Bge.. But its much more then that.
    Lots of my friends revel at the Bge but not can afford it nor see the point in buying a grill that they say they will only use a few times in the summer.
  • What is the best way to take out the plate setter when it is hot?

    With a woo ..

    Would it be best to just push it back to the 930 central?
